Chain mouth prevents the horse from bracing on the bit. Lifter design helps to increase leverage and shoulder control.
"A winning barrel horse must know how to rate." This bit offers riders more rate and lift for control. It can be used for tuning up or competition on an experienced horse. The chain mouth is a good option for horses that seem to dislike other mouth types.
The round ring is your headstall ring. The tear drop ring will be the rein ring. This keeps your reins in a at attention poistion for faster response. When fitted properly, the mouth should be sitting at the lowest position on the cheek when at rest. This allows the mouth to float upwards once pressure is applied to the rein. Make sure to always use with a curb chain or curb strap. This will prevent the shank from rotating beyond a 45 degree angle when engaged.
